This election has not marked the "end of America as we have known it" - - it affirms that our nation is already far down the path of judgment and chastisement from God ... and get ready, more is coming!
In discussing the election with a close colleague, he mentioned that "multitudes of people were praying for this election and still Obama won, and what the heck happened?"
Well, the problem is that multitudes of people were praying for the election!
God never told His people to pray for an election! God tells His people to pray for our leaders . .
- - That "... supplications, prayers,
intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made
for all men;
For kings, and for all that are in
authority; that we may lead a quiet and
peaceable life in all godliness and
honesty." 1 Timothy 2:1-2
But far more than that, if God's people want their land (nation) to be healed, then God tells HIS people to both pray and do!
- - "If my people, which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek
my face, and turn from their wicked ways;
then will I hear from heaven, and will
forgive their sin, and will heal their
land." 2 Chronicles 7:14
In the spring of 2008 God began sending out a specific word through His prophets to the Body of Christ that HIS people must repent and usher in a revival of righteousness! But as of yet this has not happened, it has not really even begun to happen!
Instead of returning to righteousness, the vast majority of the church community is - -
- - Compromising with the enemy rather than
- - Condoning sin in their leaders because of the
sin in their own lives!
- - Seeking acceptance by the world rather than
being willing to suffer persecution and even
the loss of all things!
- - Desiring earthly goods and worldly comforts
rather than to "take up his cross daily and
- - Do I even need to go into the statistics of
adultery, divorce, abortion, pornography and
substance abuses by God's own people - even
by those in leadership?
Is it really any wonder that God answered NO to those prayers for Obama to lose the election?
IF Obama - and the progressive liberals - had lost the election, God's people would have taken this to mean that all is well again and they would have not seen any reason to change their wicked ways!
For the majority of God's people, easy times do not produce repentance - - it always takes PRESSURE! And God's people are about to be under pressure to accept sin and compromise with satanic influence as never before in this nation!
It has not even been 72 hours since the election and CONSERVATIVES are already deciding to embrace abortion, homosexuality and all manner of sin in order to gain the popularity of the population! Speaker of the House, Mr. Boehner has already declared that there will be no more efforts to overturn Obama-care!
Yes, God gave His people 4 years already to repent and revive righteousness in this land among HIS OWN PEOPLE and they have not done so! Get ready beloved - - now the Body of Christ is going to go through a furnace of affliction that will do two things:
1. Remove the dross from the Body of Christ
2. Remove the dross from the lives of the
The outcome? Well, it won't be pleasant but in the end, Christ will have a GLORIOUS CHURCH for which He is coming to collect!
- - That the trial of your faith, being much more
precious than of gold that perisheth, though
it be tried with fire, might be found unto
praise and honour and glory at the appearing
of Jesus Christ: 1 Peter 1:7
- - That he might sanctify and cleanse it with
the washing of water by the word, That he
might present it to himself a glorious
church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any
such thing; but that it should be holy and
without blemish. Ephesians 5:26-27
You and I may not see the events of the second coming of our Lord - - but we are certainly experiencing the fulfillment of the prophetic warnings of Jesus as well as throughout the New Testament as never before! We are certainly experiencing what is laying the groundwork to the Great Tribulation!
No, you and I may not live to see the events of the second coming of our Lord ... but then again, we just might! And this question was posed by Jesus Himself in Luke 18 that applies to us, especially in the midst of the flood of iniquity and unrighteousness that is being unleashed upon humanity in our day!
And the question Jesus asked is this: "Nevertheless, Nevertheless when the Son of man comes, shall he find faith on the earth?"
We cannot answer this question for the world.
We cannot answer this question for the church community.
But we can - - and must - - answer this question for our own lives! No one or no thing can make you answer either yes or no! ONLY YOU MAKE THE CHOICE TO REMAIN IN FAITH - TO REMAIN LOYAL TO OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST AND TO OUR GOD BY THAT FAITH IN CHRIST!
